American Airlines extends Boeing 737 Max cancellations through August

Acting defense secretary under probe over Boeing ties

Twitter erupted Monday morning when President Donald Trump shared his branding expertise with Boeing, after American Airlines announced it was cancelling Boeing's Max 737 flights through mid-August.

One of America's largest airlines is cancelling 115 flights a day because of fears over the safety of the Boeing 737 Max aircraft.

On the heels of American Airlines' Sunday announcement that it would keep its Boeing 737 Max fleet grounded until at least August 19, President Trump weighed in with some advice for the aircraft's maker.

Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 jets have been grounded in the United States since March 13, when the FAA concluded that it needed to investigate "the possibility of a shared cause" between the two crashes.

Booming demand along with the grounding of Boeing's 737 Max aircraft is biting into Northern Hemisphere spring and summer schedules.

He added: "No product has suffered like this one".

The Boeing 737 MAX 8 remains grounded in the US following two deadly crashes under similar circumstances within a matter of months.

The advice comes after Boeing CEO expressed "the enormous gravity" that the company felt regarding Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 and Lion Air Flight 610 crashes. According to the publication, he surrendered ownership of Trump Shuttle to creditors in 1990 after he wasn't making enough money. But again, what the hell do I know?'

Ivanka Trump today honored the victims of the Ethiopian Airlines crash by attending a special ceremony and laying a wreath in the country's capital Addis Ababa during her tour of Africa.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration grounded the 737 Max on March 13, three days after the second fatal crash involving the jet in five months.

"This has without a doubt damaged Boeing's reputation and we foresee a dent to the (Boeing) brand's value at over $12 billion", Chief Executive David Haigh said by email when asked about Trump's comments.
